Picture of Breadboard-friendly Multimeter
2014-03-21 14.03.07.jpg
Using breadboards I soon faced the problem of the multimeter probes too thick to be plugged in the breadboard holes for a stable and handless contact.
I had the idea to modify my multimeter in order it to be much easier to connect to the breadboard

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
wire09-5pin-ff-jumper_01.jpg
the material needed for this project is
A multimeter: In my case a DT830B
(I choose a cheap one because I preferred not to endanger of destruction an expensive device)

Female dupont connector Jumper wire for standard 0.1" breakaway headers.

Soldering wire

Maybe a little of hot glue


The Tools needed are a
soldering iron
screw driver
maybe a drill and hot-glue gun

Thnx for sharing. Not only is it useful for breadboard but also for checking resistors n caps directly as shown in the pic.
